More funny things kids say

"The Kids"

I’ve never heard of this show, but it looks like it would be funny. (Assuming it’s a show?)

 

Here’s a mishmash of some great lines from children:

 

“Wooo! It’s stinky in here!” -Lucy, four-years-old, after pooping on the potty.

 

Also Lucy: “My lips are wiggly.” Me: “Why are they wiggly?” L: “Because they’re sticking out.” Me: “Why are they sticking out?” L: “Because they’re getting old.” Overhearing too many of her parents’ conversations, perhaps?

 

I gave each of my three girls, ages six, four, and 19 months, a little hot chocolate. The oldest said, “It doesn’t taste very good to me, but the kids like it.” Read the rest of this entry

The Tooth Fairy has a difficult decision to make

Standard
English: Artists impression of the tooth fairy...

Artist’s impression of the tooth fairy. (Wikipedia)

It all started with the nighttime prayers when my five-year-old prayed that her bothersome loose tooth would come out soon. It was only a little bit loose, mind you.

Then, at tooth brush time, for the first time in days, she didn’t say, “Be careful of my loose tooth.” She had been saying this at every teeth brushing for the past several days. At the previous brushing, I finally told her, “I know. You don’t have to tell me every time,” with just the slightest bit of irritation.

As you’ve probably already guessed, because she didn’t say it, I forgot about the loose tooth and managed to clock it with the princess electric toothbrush she got from the dentist. Ah, the irony.

It started bleeding and was now very loose. I grabbed a square of toilet paper to wrap around it, and, naturally, the tooth fell out between my fingers. She  mewed a bit when I showed it to her. “See how quickly God answered your prayer?!” She actually perked at that.

Invisible high-five for me.

Tucked snuggly in her bed, tooth safely stowed under her pillow, the bleeding having stopped, my daughter said, Read the rest of this entry
